Happy Birthday, Malikhi! [Tag: Malikhi (of course)]
Sat Sep 8, 2018 15:13

Evelyn was probably more excited for Malikhi's birthday than he was. All the tension of the past month or so was weighing heavily on Evelyn's shoulders and birthdays were always the best sorts of things to relieve some of that. Even at home, where her own birthday was more of an excuse to mock her than anything to celebrate, it had at least gotten her out of the house and she'd had a fair justification for her time in the woods. But Malikhi's birthday wasn't during the summer and thus he had no escaping the celebrations of his friend. Evelyn also knew he was probably feeling more than a little homesick that morning and so she felt an extra responsibility, and a lucky distraction, to keep him happy.

She was sitting in the Common Room before anybody else that morning, since no one really got up early on weekends. She hadn't had the opportunity to decorate because there were little materials available to her to do so but she wanted to make sure she was there before he was. Her lipstick, jewelry, and clothing all reflected that it was his birthday, too, by representing his favorite colors. She hadn't had any kneehigh socks in his favorite color but thought the ones with broomsticks on them would work just as well, and they were mostly hidden by her capris anyway.

Evelyn did feel a bit bad that she hadn't been able to get him a proper gift, but she'd taken more to exploring the Sonora grounds in her free time recently and thought an adventure would suit him even better. So when he finally did wake up and stumbled his way bleary-eyed down the stairs into the Common Room, she greeted him with a massive hug and grin.

"Good morning, Kai!" she practically shouted, doing her best not to be totally disrespectful to students who were still sleeping. "Are you ready for an adventure?" she asked, practically dragging him towards the couches in the Common Room. She knew he was probably hungry; she was hungry, too. But the most important thing on a birthday was a birthday wish, so it was crucial to extract one before proceeding.

"Tell me," she said, pushing him gently onto the couch and curling up her knees as she sat beside him, facing each other. "Do you have a birthday wish? You don't have to tell me, but do you know what it is?"
